Washing Machine Suddenly Stopped

My tenants told me, "Midway through, the washing machine simply stopped. No noise or otherwise noticeable event happened. We checked the breaker, checked both plugs in that socket with a lamp (which worked in both places), and tried various attempts to restart the load with no luck."

It is a Maytag Atlantis, Serial #: 19283279CL, Model #: MAV9750AWW

Can you help?

Try turning the time to differant positions and see if it works at all.
Make sure the top is closed all the way, move the load around inside and try to start it.

most likely the lid switch, common problem with that machine.
